Looking East across the front of the house, taken around noon today!
Another thing in the list of things that irk me... As a reader, it bugs me when an author, usually when writing dialogue, misspells words trying to conger up some quaint dialect. I don't mind the occasional contraction, or omission of a letter here and there, but sometimes it's done to the point that the word or phrase is unrecognizable at first or even second glance. To me, it's distracting if I have to go back and sound it out to gain an idea of what the character is saying. Takes me out of the reading flow, I guess. I don't mind things like "sez" for "says" and the like, but some are really difficult to comprehend at first glance. In my own writing I try to use the order or arrangement of the words to indicate a person's speech characteristics, more so than trying to spell them to reflect particular pronunciations, dialects, etc.
Coco was just barking at something so I went to look and saw a FedEx truck across the street, delivering a package. I got to wondering... if Fed Ex and UPS combined, would they be known as a Fed Up Service?
That's it for now. More next time.
